lion of our hearts in many wayways, battling for the hearts and minds of america on a number of different issues. but really the issue so mf of us will remember this senator for is the issue of health care and no greater battle is being waged right now on the senate familiar and also the congressional halls than this issue of health care. as we talk about all this senator has been fighting personally as he tried to win this battle against cancer, can you give us any sense at this point how will this man's legacy be krark terized? is it even too soon to talk about that at this moment? >> well, i don't think it's too soon. it's such an enormous spokesperson of public life since we heard about his terminal diagnosis more than a year ago. and part of what ted kennedy has seen over these many months is there's a greater tendency to look at his accomplishments, to honor his service, and some of the years when he was much more strongly criticized, he was often the democrat that republicans most liked to oppose. much of that has settled down and he's acknowledged some of those inappropr

america has been taken away. >> i am an american citizen. i hate what my america has turned into. i want it back. i don't think representatives and senators are going to be able to do it. i'm scared. >> we talk tonight with our own jonathan alters. is the fear, is that scare that is in evidence at that meeting and other town hall meetings, is it about the health care plan or fear and anger about the man who won the presidential election november last? and is there an odd sense here we could have been looking at these side yos from something that came from a mccain/palin rally? >> it does seem reminiscent of some of those rallies. they are right on the edge there advocating violence or other kind of things. there is kind of a crack in the commonsense of america right now. in some ways this is good for passage of the bill. if we didn't hear about all this and the anger and wackiness of some of these town meetings, we might confuse what is going on there with american public opinion. we are now at a point where we are beyond that. i think in some ways the backlash has set in against these t

and organizing for america, they were a little slow to realize this, that their organizers at their core, they're going to try to pack the halls themselves, they're sending out emails and organizing. i think the picture will be interesting to see the next round of town halls, if they find that they cannot pack the room before the other side does. that's the thing to watch. >> there's a lot of organizing going on out there, involved with the people that did swift-boating against john kerry. and a lot of money involved in the health care industry. one man raising $20 million for spending in this industry. clearly there's a lot of grassroots as well. thank you, jim vandehei. the very successful politico. >> and lynn sweet. from the "chicago sun-times." right now, it's time for the ed show, with ed schultz. >> i'm ed schultz. this is "the ed show." good evening, americans, live from 30 rock in new york, it's "the ed show" on msnbc, good to be back after a week's vacation. tonight, it's an uprising, angry old white folks are storming into town halls all across america, spewing lies about

community health centers in america so that all americans in fact would have access to a doctor, to dental care, to low cost prescription drugs, a greater emphasis, much greater on disease prevention and on quality care and of course access for all americans. that was passed by the senate health committee but as you also know the senate finance committee seems to be going nowhere in a hurry. my view, and i think many other people in the senate think enough is enough. let's take the senate health committee bill. if no republicans are prepared to support it, and i certainly hope that some of them will have a change of heart with senator kennedy's death, then we go it alone. we have 60 votes within the senate and we can defeat a republican filibuster. we negotiate with the house and we finally pass health care reform that this country has been waiting for for decades. >> to the point you just raised, senator kennedy wrote that incremental measures won't suffice anymore. is there any chance that his passing will at least inspire wavering democrats in the senate and blue dogs in the hous
